BUSED Leads Sessions at GLOBE NARM
Boston University School of Education (BUSED) is facilitating two sessions at the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment program’s (GLOBE) North American Partner Meeting (NARM). NARM will be held in Woods Hole, MA on April 2, 2014.
BUSED became a GLOBE partner in 2013. As a partner, BUSED provides training to inservice and pre-service teachers on using the GLOBE protocols in the classroom. In addition, GLOBE provides a means of outreach for scientists and researchers working in associated fields. BUSED is developing curriculum and professional development training to use GLOBE as a pillar for implementing the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core.
During the NARM, B University School of Education will lead two sessions: “Elementary GLOBE education” and “The Common Core and GLOBE.” These sessions will discuss BUSED’s work on curriculum using the GLOBE protocols and Common Core Standards. Doctoral student Tom Hunt will represent BUSED at the NARM.
GLOBE is a “worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program,” working to support science education that utilizes inquiry-based investigations of the environment and the Earth system.
